This week’s Story Challenge is the letter “N” and my mind immediately goes to NO, NEVER, do NOT— I think you get the picture here.
I decided to take a look at the warning signs around my workplace to show how many things workers canNOT do. As it turned out, there are a lot of helpful warning signs that are cautionary in nature and only a few signs that are flat-out NO, or NEVER messages.
This exercise made me realize that my reaction to many suggestions has been to turn them into rules and that is a problem. I can take a suggestion, but I don’t especially like following a rule. Hmmmmph, a mental change is required at this point (my boss will be thrilled…).
Thank you, Frizz, for this challenge and this experience of personal growth.
